In the week where the first green shoots of the easing of the lockdown have appeared, what have the illustrious tweeters of the Borough of Barnet been up to? There is some amazing community stuff here this week. Please follow any tweeters who you think are doing good things and even more importantly retweet them. It helps get these great things out there. In a lockdown, we can't do much but we can do that.
1. Nice tweet from Nick Hunt about a little piece of local history

2. We agree with Feargal and Ben. This is a campaign we've been supporting for a while now.
What an absolute hero @ben_watt is.— Feargal Sharkey (@Feargal_Sharkey) March 4, 2021
An eloquent, penetrating, insightful and painfully accurate account of the failure by @CanalRiverTrust, @EnvAgency, @BarnetCouncil, @Brent_Council and @NaturalEngland to safeguard the Welsh Harp SSSI.
